What do you collect? Why do you collect it? When did it start and do you think you'll grow out of it?

Tattoos and piercings lol. I started collecting them at 13. I'm 26 now and I've slowed down a lot. I love body art, and I love being able to express myself through my body. Since that hobby has slowed down so much, I've been collecting nail polish. I'm a huge nail art whore, and I have well over 200 bottles. They're cheap (for the most part) and I enjoy taking the time out the day just for me. Dd also LOVES getting her nails done, so it's fun Mommy & daughter time too <3

Nutcrackers, when I was little I would go to my great aunts house to visit with my grandma and never had kids so no toys. I would okay with them like dolls. When she passes away my grandma gave them to me. I also collect antique Grain Belt beer memorabilia, same grandma, gave me the grain belt beer sign that used to hang her bar for my 21st birthday.

I collect books.  Not antique or rare, valuable books, just ones I enjoy reading.  I am also obsessed with arc books, it's a librarian thing.  I've loved books for as long as I can remember and I don't think it's something I'll grow out of.
